Maintenance upgrade and a cure of speed for Netvibes


We will be upgrading our servers on sonday morning (1h30 AM Paris Time GMT +1)to handle extra traffic and to make your pages load faster.

The downtime should be about around 30/45 minutes.

The servers are back online and you should enjoy a much faster netvibes now.

    I was wondering if sonday is that transitioning period between Sunday and Monday. ;)

    I’ve only just recently discovered Netvibes and it has completely changed the way I surf the web. Looking forward for the upgrade.

    Keep up the good work!

    This is absolutely excusable. I love this site and it’s on-par with all of the other great sites of the the modern Internet. Fantastic job of making something that just ‘works’ and is easy to use.

  24. #24 | Michael | August 6th, 2006 at 05:43

    Curious, how do you afford the servers and all without any advertisements or anything? Or are you just investing money (VCs?) to create a user base before you flood us with ads? ;)

  25. #25 | Bruno | August 6th, 2006 at 07:32

    I am 24/7 in netvibes. =)

  26. #26 | Anselme | August 6th, 2006 at 07:59

    C’est clair que je me vois mal me passer de Netvibes aujourd’hui, je suis devenu trop dependant :'(

  27. #27 | Thorsgris | August 6th, 2006 at 10:04

    #24 Yes, I wonder about that too.

    ?

    P.s Great site

  28. #28 | Tariq KRIM | August 6th, 2006 at 11:40

    the upgrade is finished and pages should load much faster. This is just a hardware upgrafde, it means more machines, but our next release will increase again the speed for page loading.

  29. #29 | hugo | August 6th, 2006 at 14:22

    I always have problems with del.icio.us rss feeds. i don’t like the del.icio.us module so i use ordinary feeds but they cannot be received all the time. Any way to solve this?

  30. #30 | Vincent | August 6th, 2006 at 14:29

    Thank you Tariq. Netvibes is on top !
    My blob has been updated :

  36. #36 | LostInBrittany | August 7th, 2006 at 10:57

    Superbe, ça marche vraiment bien maintenant !

  37. #37 | Taro | August 7th, 2006 at 15:34

    Since the upgrade I’ve been having some problems with netvibes it’s runnig slow and only updating the tab I was last on when I opened the page. Tries it on two different PC’s with two different versions of windows. Both IE6 and Firefox

  38. #38 | Gaelle | August 7th, 2006 at 18:55

    I still have recurrent problems with explorer (just it doesnt update, explorer does not answer and I have to stop it)
    I dont have such pb with firefox.;.
    or am I still too impatient?

  39. #39 | Tom | August 8th, 2006 at 09:54

    Since i’m back from hollydays (1 week), the keyboard shortcuts don’t work anymore in netvibes. I’ve tried with different PCs and different browsers (firefox and IE).
    Do you know something about this?

  40. #40 | alex | August 8th, 2006 at 13:04

    Hey Tom, Keyboard support is now an optional feature. Turn it on under settings again.

  41. #41 | Tom | August 8th, 2006 at 15:16

    Thks Alex, works fine now.

  42. #42 | Hervé | August 8th, 2006 at 16:25

    Thanks because using netvibes since yesterday is a nightmare….
    2min to load my pages without any possibility to wait.
    Please upgrade your server

  43. #43 | François | August 8th, 2006 at 17:03

    Hervé, which browser are you using ?

  44. #44 | Lphant | August 8th, 2006 at 19:18

    Netvibes forever!

    I didn’t read this article before the maintenance.

    So, I read it after :D

  45. #45 | Deol | August 8th, 2006 at 23:08

    Great work!

  46. #46 | MoiMême | August 9th, 2006 at 15:29

    Nevtibes est beaucoup plus rapide maintenant !

  47. #47 | Johannes | August 9th, 2006 at 22:29

    still having performance problems: i have 10 tabs with many (ca. 8 objects / tab) and only the active tab will load since your upgrade. the other tabs will remain "loading"…

    i am using flock on a mac/pc with a broadband connection on work.

    i LOVE netvibes.

  48. #48 | Sacha | August 10th, 2006 at 12:28

    Hey Guys,

    First of all, thanks for Netvibes. I’ve been using it for quite a while now and am still very content.

    Nonetheless I would really appreciate it if you could focus on improving the feed reader algorithm – it just marked the news about Heathrow terrorist attacks as read, although I had no idea of it at all. That is quite frustrating.

  49. #49 | Jestre | August 10th, 2006 at 13:49

    I, too, am still experiencing a significant slowdown. For the past three weeks or so the service has been almost unusuable :(

  50. #50 | Hervé (Strasbourg) | August 11th, 2006 at 10:19

    C’est OK avec Firefox mais ça met beaucoup de temps à charger avec IE 6

  51. #51 | taro | August 11th, 2006 at 16:42

    it’s a shame as it was so good but so unusable now. Anyone know if there is a way I can export an OPML file from netvibes, some acknowledgement of the problem and assurance that it’s being looked at would keep me coming here but at the moment it looks like I’m going to have to search for a replacement . It’s been awfull all week

  52. #52 | bradley | August 12th, 2006 at 07:05

    the upgrade has been done already? i can’t see any difference. it’s still very slow on my browser (internet explorer, latest version). where are your servers located? not in the united states i guess?

    bradley

  53. #53 | lewen | August 13th, 2006 at 15:51

    I have to concur with those that say service has gotten worse since the upgrade.

    This morning (sunday, EST), absolutely nothing is working … the page loads but none of the modules do … no feeds, no bookmarks, no writely, no gmail, nothing …. :(

  54. #54 | lewen | August 13th, 2006 at 15:54

    OK, the pages finally loaded. But it should not take 1 minute to load bookmarks.

  55. #55 | Loktar | August 13th, 2006 at 17:36

    hi,
    im posting the 55th messages so i think not a lot of people will read it, doesn’t matter.
    I just wanted to say to say netvibes is great and that’s why it’s my start page (to webmasters : sometimes there’s some problems to add content with firefox, but doesn’t really matter, just gotta make my changes with IE6 :p)
    Thanx

  56. #56 | diro | August 14th, 2006 at 15:58

    Nevtibes est beaucoup plus rapide maintenant !

  57. #57 | marc | August 14th, 2006 at 18:52

    also having problems with the loading. firefox 1.5.0.6 win xp pro.

  58. #58 | Sebastian | August 16th, 2006 at 00:18

    I have problems too with Firefox 1.5.0.6 WinXP & Mac OS X

  59. #59 | Marc | August 16th, 2006 at 04:13

    to fix the problems with the loading, I checked off the setting that preloads the modules in the hidden tabs, thus now when I select the tab I want to check, it loads it once I clicked it. Works for now.

  60. #60 | François | August 16th, 2006 at 09:15

    If you have any speed problems, can you send us a feedback, and give us more details about your problem.

    Thanks a lot for your help :)

  61. #61 | doug | August 17th, 2006 at 07:33

    can someone tell me how to get the site to refresh? mine just stays static until i manually do it.

  62. #62 | Splotche | August 17th, 2006 at 09:59

    Félicitation les gars pour cette levée de fond ;-)

    Je vous souhaite le meme succes au etats unis que par chez nous !

    Good luck !

  63. #63 | colm | August 31st, 2006 at 13:43

    Has anyone else spotted the modules moving around on their tabs? my feeds are getting all out of order.

  64. #64 | François | August 31st, 2006 at 19:31

    Colm, this problem is now fixed, but we are really sorry because now you need to re-organised your Netvibes.

  65. #65 | colm | September 1st, 2006 at 10:56
